Description: A little restaurant in the Medina, designed and fitted out using reclamation wood and secondhand furniture. have created an inspired space which brings a little breath of fresh air to the restaurant scene in Essaouria.

We were so pleased with the first meal we had here during our recent week in Essaouira that we chose this stylish restaurant for the last meal of our stay. On both occasions we arrived around 7.00pm and had no problem getting a table. The owner/manager greeted us with enthusiasm and his attentiveness and efficiency continued throughout the evening. The service was perfectly timed.

The menu is quite small but the food is beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. I can particularly recommend the three salads starter, king prawns or monkfish in saffron sauce, beef with rice, and all of the deserts. Altogether an excellent eating experience. Don’t be put off by the look of the furniture; the chairs are all very comfortable.

Eclectic place, but a nice change from typical Moroccan food, though a little pricey for what you get.

Stylish little restaurant with very, very nice international food with a marrocan twist at reasonable prices. Very child friendly, too (we came with our 2y old daughter and she got her own little food plate with three different child friendly dishes free of charge). Highly recommended!

My favourite restaurant in Essaouira everything was perfect and delicious. Lovely small place, recommend booking as very busy & would be very disappointing to miss!

Excellent food, great presentation and fast too. I was impressed with the attention to detail in both food and premises at this small restaurant. All round probably the best in the medina of Essaouria, and like everywhere there it's all fresh local produce, cooked to order. I couldn't resist the goat cheese spring rolls and my partner loved the noodles, which pleasingly were reduced in price for our "no meat please" preference.
